Exciting win for Windies

Dhaka: Paceman Tino Best grabbed his maiden five-wicket haul to help the West Indies beat Bangladesh by 77 runs in the first Test in an exciting fifth day finish at Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Saturday.

The 31-year-old paceman took three wickets in the post lunch session and added another in the final session, finishing with 5-24 to rout Bangladesh for a paltry 167 after they were set a 245-run target.

Best dismissed Shahriar Nafees (23), Shakib-al Hasan (2) and Mushfiqur Rahim (16) in quick succession and then had Bangladesh's top scorer Mohammed Mahmudullah (29) to give his team a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.

There has been only four other occasions when a team lost even after scoring more than 550 in the first innings.
